Terribly sorry to hear this, she was always such a kind presence on this forum. Thoughts are with her friends and family.

Omg how awful, I remember her posts? Was she ill? She wasn't that much younger than me :( horrible news. My best wishes go out to all her family and friends. Losing a loved one is always hard.

Very sad. May she RIP. V - do you know if there was a donation set up in her name at all? I know she was supportive of many causes. If not, I'll donate in her name to something of my choosing.

The family is suggesting donations be given in Julie's honor to the retired racehorse farms that she often visited. Those are in Southern California, but I think Julz would be happy to support any good OTTB retirement group.

I didn't know her but I'm sorry to hear of her passing. There's been too much loss lately, both personally or people I know and more globally... I hope that she can live on through those who knew her.

Sad news indeed. RIP Ezariah. Julie was a regular poster in the Handicapping Forum while I was the Moderator. She was a knowledgeable handicapper and a heartfelt fan of thoroughbred racing!! Her love for the sport and the horses that ran was evident in her posts. Prayers for her and her family and friends. God bless!!

I am walking on air today! Julie was a partner in this guy when he first started racing for West Point. He ended up in Camarero, and his last race was Aug 20. We were so worried about him, and that only escalated after the storms hit Puerto Rico. It feels like Julie worked with the angels to make sure this happened. Good job, Julz! Thank you to CTA and to West Point, my faith in you has been restored.

CTA has Go Black Tie, former @westpointtbred, on our Watch for many months. They contacted us 2 help retire him when able. Pic from May.

Yes, it's a relief. And CTA just messaged me that now Go Black Tie's breeder has contacted them offering to pay to bring him home when they can get him retired. At the rate Julie's going, I have a hunch that will be fairly soon. :D (wish we had a "wink" emoji)

Although it's been a few years since I saw Julie, I have some wonderful memories of her, especially when visiting Hollywood Park before it closed, and two times at the BC when it was at SA. Several of us horse racing gals and Julie stayed at the SA Inn during the BC, and the atmosphere was like a teenage girls' slumber party, we had so much fun. As several people on this forum has said already, she was a sweet and generous lady, and one of the best horse racing photographers I've ever seen.
